am thinking ahead, this spring we will be rebuilding my Dutch Barn that got demo'd during Storm Sandy.
The chickies (9 standards) will need to have temp INDOOR housing for atleast a month, I am 'thinking' of building a temp coop inside their run which is 12 x 20+- , What size can I reasonably do without them being freaked out ?
I was thinking of doing a 4' H x 4' long , 4' "wide'? wider? longer? put 3 nesting boxes in it and their poop board/perch on top of the nest box..
We literally have to rip the roof off what's left , remove the back wall (picture below) take everything out, and pull the walls back in to square it back up.
Any ideas on temp housing??
Thanks in advance
below is what the barn looked like before storm sandy
Just to add, our rebuild plans will be the same barn/shed, but the center doors will be on the far right, two HUGE windows next to each other on the left side, and chicks will end up with the left 1/2 of the inside for their coop area..
